Arlington Virginia Social Security Office to Close

Arlington Virginia Social Security Office to Close

I was just informed that the Social Security office in Arlington, Virginia is closing on June 21, 2018.

This office, which is located at 1401 Wilson Blvd., Suite 200, Arlington, VA 22209, serves 25,000 people annually.

Normally local Social Security offices are only closed if there is a reduction (or shift) in population.

However, in the case of Arlington County, its population went up by 13% between 2010 and 2017.
